This ongoing fallacy (about vaccination) gets my goat, so to speak.

Ben Gill has a great deal to answer for, in that he advised the Government that farmers were against vaccination early in the FMD outbreak, a notion which has been clung to ever since by those in charge.

I imagine that most farmers, who probably vaccinate against other diseases, would far rather vaccinate to live than have all their animals slaughtered in an outbreak. There can't be so many farmers who are just in it for the money (what money?) and don't care about their animals, otherwise why would they be out in all weathers for long hours seeing to the welfare of their livestock.
